We performed a meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials to investigate the effectiveness of surgical fusion for the treatment of chronic low back pain compared to non-surgical intervention. Several electronic databases (MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL and Science Citation Index) were searched from 1966 to 2005. The meta-analysis comparison was based on the(More)
We reviewed 82 patients who had 92 primary Furlong uncemented hydroxyapatite (HA)-coated total hip replacements inserted between 1988 and 1992. All patients had the Furlong HA-coated stem and screw in acetabular cup with a 28-mm alumina oxide ceramic modular head. The mean age at the time of primary total hip arthroplasty was 54 years (range, 31-67 years).(More)
Our aim in this prospective radiological study was to determine whether the flexibility rate calculated from radiographs obtained during forced traction under general anaesthesia, was better than that of fulcrum-bending radiographs before corrective surgery in predicting the extent of the available correction in patients with idiopathic scoliosis. We(More)

Traumatic neck pain is a common presentation to the emergency department. Lateral plain radiographs remain the primary investigation in the assessment of these injuries. Soft tissue assessment forms an integral component of these radiographs. They can provide information on subtle injuries that may not be obvious. Many methods are used to assess the(More)
Since the introduction of flexible intramedullary nails, the treatment of femoral shaft fractures in adolescents has been revolutionized and this has become the routine treatment in most units, with minimal complications. We report a rare complication of an ipsilateral fractured neck of femur in a fit and healthy 12-year-old girl 6 months after treatment of(More)
